Good Afternoon WESTies,

Welcome to summer at WEST! Please triple check summer schedule - flyers can be found in the office as well as under our News section on our website. Programs such as Swimfit & PreComp have ended and Lessons have switched over to their summer schedule. Please read on for our exciting news this week! 

Schedule Changes:

Friday 6/28:

Normal Summer Schedule for all practice groups.

Saturday 6/29:

NO PRACTICES for Senior Elite, Senior, Accelerate, Challenge, Disco, Explore. - June Jubilee @King County Aquatics Center.  


WEST is hosting a major meet at KCAC on June 29-30. We will need ALL HANDS ON DECK to make this meet a success. Next year (2020 season) we are hosting Age Group Regionals at KCAC. Regionals is a very large meet with teams from multiple different states including Hawaii, California, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, and Alaska in attendance, so it is IMPERATIVE that volunteers get comfortable with running larger meets at the Aquatics Center. 


These will be the last major opportunities for parents to fulfill their hour requirements, so please visit the Events page for June Jubilee to sign up.


If we are unable to find volunteers, we will need to look at having any parent spectators help on deck to avoid further delays of meet. Please contact Coach Margaret at margaret@westswimteam.com for any questions. 

Summer Team has started! Please return Meet Declaration by Friday 6/28!

Shirts and swim caps will be handed out to all summer team swimmers on Friday June 28th, so please make sure you don’t miss that practices!

Please return your meet declaration slips to a summer team coach by Friday, June 

28th. Please mark the boxes to indicate which meets your swimmer will attend. The late fee is applied if you attend a meet that you declared NO to attending. Coaches will be be preparing swimmers for meets in the weeks prior to the meet.

Bench Vandalism at WEST

One of our sitting benches located in the front of WEST was recently vandalized. Parents, please make sure that your children are not playing on the landscaping which includes the rocks, anchor, and trees. Our landscaping is done by hard-working parent volunteers and we all want to make sure that WEST is a safe, pleasant looking facility.


Happy swimming and keep your stick on the ice!
